Review/Approve a Proposal
Users with reviewer/approver access can log in to CurricUNET to view proposals. When you log in, if you have a box with a number in the right corner of your Approvals link button, it means you have proposals in the workflow that you have been assigned to perform an action on. Select the "Approvals" button to view the proposals.
- Comments are not required when actions are taken, but committee members need to make a comment. May be implemented by the system in the future.
- Proposals at the College Committee and the Graduate Council workflow step will auto approve in 15 business days. The committee chair must take an action of “tabled” to stop auto approval from occurring.
- The Committee Chair is responsible for reading the notes in the Codes/Dates Temporary Reviewer Comments, and the comments made when the reviewers preformed the “Review” action.
- Temporary Reviewer Comments field is not seen by the Chairs or Originators. The Committee Chairs must adjust as necessary and enter relevant Temporary Reviewer Comments and any other comments on the Action screen, in the Comments field.
- If you play two or more "roles" in the system, you may see a course twice in your Approvals. The “Positions” will be different.
- If you are a Chair and use the action “Request Changes,” the proposal will stay in your Approvals, but it will have YES in the Pending Changes column.
- Department Chairs cannot make edits on proposals. They must return the proposals to the Originator for changes.
